A one-year book of prayers to bring nightly hope and a sense of connection to mothers who feel alone, from the mother and daughter team behind the Midnight Mom Devotional Facebook page.
Mothers are often the last ones to sleep in their homes, no matter the age of their children. Newborn babies, unsettled toddlers, fear, crazy schedules, and endless responsibilities all steal a mom's good night of rest. But the late nights don't just wear on a momma physically. There is something about a quiet and dark house that causes thoughts, anxiety, and stress that have been ignored throughout the day to rise to the surface of a mother's heart when the world goes around her goes still.
It doesn't have to be this way. Moms don't have to feel alone, because there are women across the world awake when they are, doing the very same things they are. And there is a God who wants to meet them right there in the darkness.
In this new book, Becky Thompson and her mom, Susan Pitts, bring support and hope into a momma's hands, translating what began online into a physical reminder to every mom that the Lord is with her. Each prayer will begin with the familiar opening, "Tonight, we pray for the momma who...." In language that might describe her day, her lifestyle, or her emotions, each mom will see either herself or someone she knows in every prayer.
